Specs: 4 door, Badlands, 2.7, lux, tow package .

Issue: Broken front passenger axle at CV joint. Repair was Ford replacement of both front axles. Will take 5 to 10 days to get the parts.

Update: I was in 4L and lockers were not engaged.

350KM after picking up my dream machine that took a year to arrive, it was on the back end of a tow truck with a broken front right axle heading back to the dealer for repair. The axle broke on a flat loose gravel parking lot at less than 5 km/hr with no load on it , while I was testing out (showing off) the 4 wheel cameras to my better half.

I have been a 4x4 enthusiasts for over 30 years and broken many axle as such I have learned not to full lock. The intent of the post was to see if this was an issue others have had. I am glad to hear it isnt.



Photos of break down and gravel parking lot that it happened and got towed from:

I'm gonna need some pics. Curious what actually broke.

Maybe this is why so many Canadians getting delivery now... It's the defective ones 🤷‍♂️
Sorry to hear it bud.

Auto or manual trans? Do you know what gear it was in (assuming low given the speed)? Was it the axle shaft that broke, or u-joint/CV (can't recall at the moment what Ford uses)?

Sounds like Ford handled it the right way. You’re the first I’ve heard with any axle issues, hopefully it’s just a one off!
Hello? This is not good. The motor or transmission disintegrating would be better in my opinion. More parts to fail or assemble incorrectly.

Am I alone here?
